East Saison at London Fields Brewery

London Fields Brewery launched their newest ale, East Saison last week at their tap room with well wishers and members of the local journalistic clergy including the esteemed Loving Dalston publication.

East Saison comes cask-conditioned as well as from the keg, and both are delicious. At 5.5% it’s dangerously easy to drink. Made with New Zealand hops to give it a more tropical flavour, the process is based on an old German recipe in which leftover wheat from June to August was fermented and turned into ale.

The launch also provided tours of the brewery where the patient tour guides answered any and all questions, from “What is the appropriate temperature at which to drink this beer?” to, “Is it unpatriotic to use New Zealand hops instead of English hops?”

To try East Saison for yourself and have a tour of the brewery head to the London Fields Tap Room (they run Monday-Wednesday and all day on weekends). Alternatively, you can try East Saison at The Queen of Hoxton, we recommend heading to their rooftop for a captivating view of the capital.
